WONCA Europe and the College of Family Physicians in Poland are pleased to invite you to the 23rd WONCA Europe Conference which will be held on 24 – 27 May 2018 in Krakow, Poland.
The theme of the Conference is "Family Medicine: Quality, Efficiency, Equity”.
Throughout Europe, General Practitioners and Family Doctors practice everyday to provide to their patients high quality primary medical care. They play a key role in the healthcare systems to make efficient use of limited resources and to assure equal care to all patients. Nowadays, as Europe faces new crises, preserving these the universal values: Quality, Efficiency and Equity is a new challenge for all family physicians and we want to discuss them during the conference in Kraków. We invite researchers, educators, managers, but especially practising doctors to contribute to this debate.
Krakow - charming, mediaeval city, and an old capital of Poland welcomes you and offers its tradition, history, culture and unforgettable atmosphere of a magic place, which attracts every year millions of visitors. We hope that in May 2018 you will be among them.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Krakow!
